to it the families of sandy hook. that is why we are here today. i would like to thank lawn and all of our technology leaders for exporting one of our top, in fact, it is the city's major asset. our spirit of innovation. and launching into a national issue that demands immediate attention and it effects cities in every community across our nation. thank you for joining us this morning for this announcement, and i would at this time like to introduce the founder of the sandy hook promise, mr. tim macrus. >> good morning, my name is... we had a little bit of a logistical change and my name is lee show and i am the co-founder of the sandy hook promise and a member of the executive committee and thank you mayor lee for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us. and the mayor knows the primary responsible of the government is to keep the citizens safe and thank you all for being here. i would like to start with a little background on sandy hook, promise and who we are and what we are determined to do and why we are here today. to understand the devastation of december 14th, the shootings and or
with a fresh view, with no assumptions. we need to create technology that allows us to visualize and measure brain functions in an affordable, accurate, and an accessible manner. in our scientific careers we have seen over and over again, seemingly impossible puzzles solved by young, fresh, thinkers. they don't know the rules. they don't live in a box of assumptions. and therefore, they are free to imagine. and that is why we are so thankful for jim and ron and the sandy hook promise. and owe them a great debt of gratitude because this is what they are asking for. they are asking for people to imagine. first, imagine what it is like to lose a loved one at the hands of a deranged gunman and let that motivate you to do something. imagine that we can identify people at risk of violent behave ors early in their life and intervene, imagine the communitis that support one another. embrace diversety and recognize the value of brain health and then let's go to work. let's create technology that allows us to visualize, and measure brain functions in an affordable, accurate and accessible manner so we
call item 21? >> item 21 is a resolution adopting the city's five-year communication and technology plan for fiscal year 2013-2014 through fiscal year 2017-18 pursuant to administrative code section 22a.6. >> president chiu. >> thank you, mr. chair. again, i want to thank the members of the budget committee for the consideration and support of the five-year information and communication technology plan which i had several years ago in legislation asked that our city's i-t staff put together so that we can have a framework about how we plan invest in technology. and i do support the plan as it's laid out. one thing i would just notice, though, for colleagues is that over the next five years we have about $200 million of capital needs that we have within our ict areas and i think it's important for us to think about that, to think about how we can make government more efficient and effective through the use of technology, and to do this in a way that really increases public access and transparency. but all that being said, colleagues, i hope that you will be able to support this plan

are inventive, creative, technologically brilliant, these bets are starting to backfire. meanwhile, other companies decide to focus here. this is -- remember the 310 million? and when their executives get it right, it's nothing short of magnificent. especially on one more ugly day like today. let's use the earnings reports just from this week to drive home the point. start with verizon, one of my absolute favorite companies, reporting outstanding growth, adding more than 600,000 subscribers and simultaneously getting each subscriber on average to pay more. pay more for the service because they're selling more smartphones, data hogs. incredible numbers. i can't believe that verizon has 93 million subscribers. that's almost one in three of all the people here. even better, verizon has nary a subscriber here or here. that means it can't disappoint, because if you have customers in this place or that place, they're letting you down! they're not buying! they're not doing what we thought they'd do. so verizon represents the best we have, domestic security growth, terrific balance sheet, and don
in power, with sewer, with water that are not always proven technologies, but they're things that are enough proven you should take a bit of a risk and you should show others it can be done. >> we're showing the world, suddenly had wind turbines which they didn't have before. so, our team realizing that time would change, and realizing where the opportunities were today, we said, you know what, we started out as really something to control wind as an asset, when you combine today's technology becomes something entirely different. >> wind turbines in an urban environment is a relatively new concept. there are a few buildings in other major cities where they have installed wind turbines on the roof. and wind turbines in buildings are effective. >> the discussion was do we do that or not? and the answer was, of course. if they're not perfect yet, they're building a building that will last 100 years. in 100 years someone is going to perfect wind efficient turbines. if these aren't right, we'll replace them. we have time to do that. >> the building that's two renewable energy gene

. but then, i remembered, a piece of technology i invented last year while interviewing documentarian errol morris. when you interview people you're not in the room with them. you actually have a screen that you're looking at with your face on it while you ask them questions? >> that's right. >> stephen: inspired by that i created something called the ask-o-matic. it's an ipad hot glued to a bucket. ( laughter ). ( applause ) well, folks, since i debuted the ask-o-matic, all right-- ( cheers and applause ) -- since i debuted this cutting edge technology, the good folks at colbert labs have come up with a game-changing innovation-- a second bucket. now, why is it better? first of all, it's double the buckets. and i can put an iphone inside this bucket. and using face time i can put my face on the outside of the second bucket, thereby teleporting my head on to somebody else's body. and allowing me to be everywhere without going anywhere. ( laughter ) recently, i put this exciting new technology into action. i called on my reliable and expendable intern jay for the bucket maiden voyage. ( lau
. the technology network in san jose who made this a crucial project. i want to call out a thanks to or tactical team. we know how to make it small, not over 150 feet in the air. we have a studio, zone engineering and i have to say thanks to hmr who has been a rock star and directly one of the reasons this is happening. an extremely talented project. thank you all. i also want to just take a moment to really acknowledge that while leo and i have done a lot of things m in this world, we would not be able to do it alone. there is only one person responsible for this project and that is executive director of the arts. luminarias. i can go on and on. i think i will throughout the night. do know that she's a special person and this entire community owes her a debt of gratitude. i want to thank leo and his family for bringing the level of artistic integrity for this work that somehow slipped through the progress of a work of contemporary art parallel in art history. it has everything to do with leo and our interpretations with our discussion and that one minute that transformed how people will be rec
dispatch will reveal itself in terms of reference we looked at zones and with new technology we can where a taxi is and license it to be in certain places. none of the neighborhoods outside the corridor are being serviced. we expect to lay the foundation for using modern technology so i knowed have options. and then my second question is back to the directors question is the increase of the madalinas. and this is on the budget impact of shifting the pricing of the madalinas. i was looking through my comprehensive budget and what will be the impact to the raw budget? >> up until this point we haven't, you know, decided how many of the madalinas would be when we set a price we didn't know maybe every 10 we use the impact would be this. the math is if we were to secure authorization to get 1 hundred would be times 3 hundred thousand or so. that's the budget impact our if you recall when we were developing the two year budget we're conservative we didn't know where this process was going to go. so the question is the recommendation from 2 to 3 hundred would it yeast a revenue problem? no, i
technology division. but there is in general, no large scale face recognition search capability available to the fbi or the british government agency to help. >> why is that? why is that? >> a couple of things. performance has not been adequate for the task. it is true that the u.s. government does on a regular basis test the systems. the national institute of standards and technology regularly publishes test results on facial recognition technology. those test results are on their website. face.missed.gov. you can see how well the algorithms do in a variety of situations. a second reason is particularly right now there is no money for research or implementation. >> in this case, the quality of the images may have been an issue. the humans recognized the suspects but maybe there is not enough definition for the algorithms to pick it up? >> you're exactly right. speaker and fingerprint recognition and the like. the standard says you have to have 90 pixels of resolution between the two eyes. the pictures that i have been shown have had in the order of 12 pixels or 20 pixels between the eyes

't have technology then that we have now. i that i is why they're affirmative in this area. >> greta: i hope this is, i think the caps are helpful, too. a lot of things like that are helpful to piece this together. mark, as always, thank you. >> you know, you're -- thank you, greta. >> greta: this is a fox news alert there are reports of gunshots on the campus of m.i.t.. police responding to the scene. mike tobin is live with the latest. mike? >> information is coming off the m.i.t.web site now this, is building number 32. the building is surrounded by responding agencies. the situation is considered active and dangerous, we know that the cambridge police are responding to augment the campus police there. not a lot is as far as information goes nothing to indicate there is a connection between what happened here on boliston street and what is going on on campus but chronology is owl all tlchl the fact this release happened you had individuals considered armed and dangerous or labeled armed and dangerous by the fbi. now we have nfrgs coming out of the massachusetts institution of technol

of massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge, massachusetts, just a short drive away. again, we can tell you at least right now, nbc is reporting that the two suspects believed to be in this incident are the same two suspects that were fingered for the marathon bombings in boston on monday. we will follow pictures, we will, of course, follow news for you out of this and we will interrupt our guests and programming as needed to bring you those updates throughout the program this morning. in the meantime, let's get a check on how markets are trading. first, let's head out to singapore where li sixuan is keeping an eye on things. what can you tell us? >> indeed, thank you, kelly. a lot of green arrows in asia today as the greater china markets are indeed the stellar outperformer with the shanghai composite, the hang seng gaining some 2%. also, lots of speculation around a potential imminent widening of the u.n.'s trading ban. we saw technical rebound in financials and commodity plays, especially from the big aussie miners that were hit hard yesterday. metals soared almost 10% today. bhp bil
are announcing today with our technology community and certainly with the families of sandy hook. i would like to thank the families who flew all the way here from newtown, connecticut for joining us here today in san francisco. and while you are far away from home, i hope that you feel welcomed in our city. as a father of two girls myself, i can't imagine the pain and grief that you have suffered these past three months. and i have profound respect for your courage and for your commitment, for turning this grief into action. the tragic and horrifying events in sandy hook elementary school, touched every american, a tragedy of this magnitude brings along with it the pain, the shock, and the disbelief. and it forces all of us to ask the question how can we prevent such terrible events? how do we protect our children? our youth, our residents? for san francisco, it is very important for us to continue to have an open dialogue regarding gun violence so that we can answer these questions ourselves. today, we honored the three-month anniversary of the tragic mass shootings at sandy hook, elementary
10:30, the brothers tried to rob a 7-eleven store near the massachusetts institute of technology. then news a police officer was attacked. sean collier, 26 years old, was shot as he sat in his car. he died soon after. the brothers hijacked a car, and the chase that followed ended in watertown, 10 miles from boston. on the usually quiet suburban street, there was a fierce firefight, captured on mobile phones. the police were taking no chances. the innocent owner of the pect tvaycar was for a he died in hospital. >> the closed in around one guy. they got in position. >> what did you see? >> just -- they were screaming at him. they all had their guns out. he was at the point where he was like this. finally, by the time the car came over, he finally laid down to go back on the ground, and that was said. >> the whole town has become a crime scene. the younger brother who escaped the shootout. >> you should be considered armed and dangerous and a threat to anybody he might approach. there is a 20-block perimeter around the location the chief is talking about. we are concerned withecuri
cyclical areas like technology potentially. >> oh, you would get into technology? you see bargains because they've been so atenown over the lastouple of weeks? >> yeah. i think the valuation differential is so stretched at this point, you find a lot of the big stable consumer staples companies trading at 20 times earnings, where you see a lot of the technology companies trading 10 times earnings. so about half the valuation. and we do think there is some good value there as the economy does improve. we think that's a better stunt. >> i want to ask you about economic numbers. next week we are getting economic numbers on housing. and also we're going to get a sense of how the economy grew in the first quarter with that gross domesticroduct gdp number coming out. how is that going to impact action next week do you think? >> i think the components and the mix of gdp growth are going to be very important. what we saw in the fourth quarter of last year was a really big drag in terms of government spending. and that's not likely to repeat here again in the first quarter. but that's what investors
] >> the oakland police department is testing shotspotter technology used to detect gunfire and pinpoint the location. >> now with this technology we can actually tell exactly where a person got shot within five meters of the gunshots going off. additionally, with these alerts, we are going to be getting these actual gunshot alerts within 45 seconds where viewed by shotspotter and pushed out to the police cars where they get a map of the location, the number of shots, listen to the gunshots as they respond for tactical purposes. >> the technology also alerts police to shootings when no one calls 911. >>> you can check out one of san francisco's landmark buildings from a new point of view. a visitors center just opened up inside the transamerica pyramid complete with a gift shop. for over a decade, tourists have to look at it from the outside. it was built in the '60s. the building with its unique shape has a controversial past, though. now an iconic status. these displays tell the story. >> transamerica was a bunch of young turks looking for purpose. >> the acquisition of that particular
of people and photographs and technology where there are images every which way. although hopefully it helps put together a better case, and find out who these two are, it makes it hard. >> sean: there's some motivation behind this, ideology, whatever it is. people on the left say it's got to be a right winger, you know, the rush to judgment, we can speculate all day long. to me there's got to be some motivation that you're going to walk carefully, drop a bomb, and walk away. right? >> terrorism is intimidation toward some purpose, toward some end. a good prosecutor, investigator, is not going to put any ideology off the table. there's no, you know, conservative -- >> sean: occupy wall street, left wing, right wing, religious radical, islamist. >> right. the purpose of today was not to prove the case. the purpose of today was to get images out there that might get the help of the public to identify these guys, and the hope is that by the time you identify them, which i hope will happen in short order, you'll also be able to catch them. you hope they're not in the breeze and we never see them
on the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology, a prestigious university here in the boston area, specifically in cambridge, there was a shooting of a police officer. the officer was killed. there was also a carjacking in cambridge. there was a chase. two individuals have been arrested in watertown, massachusetts. there has been a big police presence, both local law enforcement and the federal bureau of investigation, the fbi which would suggest that this is not your average local crime, even though the shooting of a police officer is taken sle seriously. the fbi would not necessarily be involved in the manhunt for somebody who shot a police officer. the fbi has said, they've acknowledged to cnn, they're trying to figure out if there's any connection whatsoever with what is going on this evening on the campus of m.i.t. and in watertown where the individuals were apprehended and what happened earlier on monday a couple blocks from me. i'm going to go to drew griffin on the scene in watertown where these arrests have taken place. drew, what can you tell us? >> reporter: we just got
or were part of a larger terrorist organization. >> brown: and we look at how technology allowed police and thpu t >> suarez: plus, we get the perspective of mark shields and david brooks on terror's return to u.s. soil and the rest of the week's news. nighrown: that's all ahead on s "newshour." >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> support also comes from carnegie corporation of new york, a foundation created to do what andrew carnegie called "real and permanent good." celebrating 100 years of philanthropy at carnegie.org. >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... and friends of the newshour. >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> brown: it's been an extraordinary scene and it continues, as boston spent the day locked down by a manhunt for the second brother authorities believe was involved in this week's marathon bombing. that's come after a violent confrontation overnight that left the other bombing suspect a
is the introduction of the new technologies. they are occurring very rapidly, changing how people are communicating. if they don't have the flexibility to make those changes, they are not going to be able to be competitive in the future. the postal commission could stay in place as a check against what they are doing. but unless they are given the flexibility i just don't see how they are going to deal to give their costs and alignment with evidence today that the postmaster general or to raise the rates, that wouldn't interfere with future businesses with a certain degree to lose business i'm assuming that you have taken all of that into consideration. is that right? >> you need the balance raising their rates. many of our suggestions go to cutting the cost. our point is that you need to bring costs and alignment with the revenues. so why not saying that you should be raising rates. you have to cut the cost first and dues great ability particularly for products where you are losing, not covered in your cost already as i mentioned in the articles and catalogs. but you have to balance those issues a
this is developing in the last few hours? >> well, i think this technology is remarkable. a couple years ago i worked on an assassination investigation in lebanon and the amazing ability of modern police force to go after people like this and run them down to ground is amazing. i think that if, in fact, these people have stayed in the united states and these pictures are out everywhere with the police, with facial recognition, that it's a matter of time we get them. >> i mean -- >> assuming they haven't left. >> it's interesting to me because social media has been taking a kicking in the last 36 hours for lots of hype, innuendo, rumor, perhaps the bad side of the way social networking can play in these instances but now we have a clear positive, where somebody took one picture on his iphone, then posted it to facebook, a friend of his on facebook studied that picture once the fbi released these images today and saw the connection. and that in itself could be a really quite dramatic move forward for the fbi. >> yeah, there's no way out of this for them unless they go live in the wilderness or somethin
technology gives them a detailed heat map. prediction of where the fire might two or stall out. >>reporter: before the partnership the u.s. forest service gathered fe image but had trouble getting it to the fivrments they with putting the map on thumb drive and dropping them out of the airplane. >> you can see we used the actually drop the imagery on either a thumb drive or print it off in the air plane and put it in a tube and drop it down to the runway. >>reporter: the also hole in the plane replaced by antenna. instead of waiting hours firefighters know where to go in mutes. >> if some of the portions out in harm way it allows them to get communication out to them to move or to deploy to different area. >> forest service says only one problem with the technology. there's not enough of it. but nasa has answer for that too. sensor is the first that can scan fires during the daytime as well as at night so it can work around the clock. for the pilots the bags are packed. >> ready to go it looks like next week down in new mexico coy. jonathan bloom abc 7 new news. >> effective with. >>
to check and make sure that we were on schedule. the first technology of its kind... mom and dad, i have great news. is now providing answers families need. siemens. answers. >> in terms of what we're going to do differently to ensure safety of bostonnians and americans, issue shifts to more effective public safety measures that people with walk the streets in safety. melissa: as second bombing suspect remains at large, authorities and legislators are working to know sure we do not see another incident like this on u.s. soil, we often look for answers by changing laws. was there anything done that we could prevent this? and how to we not over reacted? our panel michael barrett, mike baker, and diligence. we have rod wheeler, former dc homicide detective, and fox news contributor, welcome, michael, start with you, this is our knee-jerk reaction, something like this happens, lawmakers almost don't want to miss the opportunity to jump in do something, many times with great intentions of trying to stop it from happening again, but they may or may not do sense, first i heard, these were indiv
of technology they have now, obviously you can imagine all kinds of records that they must be trying to match those pictures up against with all the techniques that they have these days to see whether, going in tight on those faces, they can match them up in that way as well. >> yeah. i just noticed that on the right leg. again, i might be imagining it. joe johns is in washington with new information. joe, what are you learning? >> anderson, a federal law enforcement official briefed on the investigation tells our producer that the current thinking is that the devices were remotely detonated, but that official would not go into any details. the official would not say if they were set off by a cell phone or by some other method. now, this official also said the bulk of the material recovered by the authorities apparently came from the black bag you've heard so much talk about. the official added that bag showed up in a lot of pictures yesterday, showing something next to a mailbox which appears frankly to have nothing to do with the explosions. the official also said it is accurate that the fb
of the boston area. specifically, cambridge and the campus of the massachusetts institute of technology. a campus officer has been shot and killed by an unknown gunman. there is a massive, active search going on right now.. cnn is reporting tonight - that one suspect has been apprehended in watertown in connection with the campus shooting. watertown is across the charles river from the school campus. and only a couple miles from mondays tragedy. there are unconfirmed reports of explosions in the area. raising intense concern following mondays explosions. as we know, there is an intense manhunt for the two suspects in monday's bombing. the f-b-i releasing those suspect pictures just today. we have to stress, at this time, there is no confirmation, as to whether these two incidents might be related. tonights shooting happened on the m.i.t campus. the officer was transported to a nearby hospital but did not survive. everyone in boston understandably on edge after monday's tragedy. we will continue following this story and update you, as necessary, throughout the newcast. as we said, today
domestic savings but we still require at a margin, foreign investment, for that brings technology. that brings invasion, that brings better management skills and management management practices. it opens new markets for us. it introduces us to new products. that is the advantage of getting fdi. >> the texas explosion,s bots to-- boston investigation and the global economy when we continue. >> rose: funding for charlie rose was provided by the following:. >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders. and by bloomberg provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. . >> rose: we begin this evening with the explosion at a fertilizer plant in west texas which is near waco. here is the explosion which took place last night. at last count five people have died and more than 160 injured. it produced ground motion equivalent to that of a magnitude 2.1 earthquake. the mayor of west said it felt as if a nuclear bomb had exploded. buildings within a five block rad yux
, a police officer had been shot dead there at the massachusetts institute of technology in cambridge. kurt shorts, the under secretary for homeland security and emergency management, gave an outline to the measures being taken in the watertown area. >> to the residents of watertown, newton, waltham, belmont, cambridge, and the allston brighton neighborhoods of boston, we are asking you to stay home, stay indoors. we are asking businesses not to open. we are asking people not to congregate outside. we are asking people not to go to mass transit. and we are hopeful that as the day proceeds that we can provide further guidance and will be able to open portions of the system and be able to ease these rest
